Question about Samson G-TRACK USB RECORDING MICROPHONE Microphone

1 Answer

Troubleshoot I just got this microphone. I have a mac and it is picking it up on the USB port, but the universal drivers are not downloading automatically and I can't find them online. Also, when I try recording I only get sound from the left speaker regardless of what setting I have it on. I have it set up to input and output for sound. I have no idea what the problem is. This is frustrating. Can anyone help?

    A lot of frustration too managing to combine the mic and Mac. The combination was specially recommended by the shop where I purchased it. But I have the same problem as you desctribe, with sound only on the left side. The mono 1 gives some sound (but with terrible extra noise, so in practice useless), the stereo gives some recording sometimes.



    In the sound input window it says this device has no input controls, as opposed to e.g. the internal phone. A real disappointment so far!

The mic is on the left side. That's how it's supposed to work. You should set your recording software to only record the left channel on one track and the right channel on another track.

The level controls are the knobs on the front.

How do I configure my Dynex USB microphone?


try uninstalling it and then re-installing it:

Plug the USB connector into an available external USB port on
your computer or laptop. On most computers, drivers install
automatically and your microphone will be ready to use.

Note: On Windows, if you are prompted with the Add New Hardware Wizard, follow the steps to download and install the driver.

Hi i have a problem with samson c01, it doesnt work because i use a pc and a usb cable. no power , what can i do?


Some users have reported problems with this microphone not working properly with Windows Vista operating system but it is fine with XP and Windows 7. Some MAC & Linux users have also encountered installation problems.
All condenser microphones require a power source to make them work. In the case of USB mics they take their operating power from the computers USB port. If you have a lot of other USB devices connected then there may not be enough power available to run them all at the same time. Disconnect any devices that you do not need.
First step would be to make sure that you connect to a main USB port (not a separate hub). If you are using a desktop or tower computer use the USB ports on the rear of the computer, which are mounted directly on the motherboard. Front panel USB ports are normally on a hub and may therefore prove unreliable with some devices..
Next try to diagnose the problem by process of systematic elimination
  1. Test your sound-card - does it work okay with other sound sources such as a microphone plugged into the normal microphone input (red socket) on the sound-card or on your front panel.
  2. Do you have another USB sound source that you can plug in to make sure that your computer will accept sound from that route?
  3. Now check the microphone for faults. Is the LED on the microphone coming on to indicate it is getting power?
  4. If no the microphone itself, or the cable, may be faulty. Try plugging it in to a different computer, games console, stereo or audio device with a USB input to see if it will work there (note not all audio devices will have sufficient power on the USB socket so this test may not be conclusive)
  5. Is the computer operating system actually recognising the presence of the microphone in the first place?
  6. Does a little balloon pop up to say a device has been plugged in - and does it correctly identify what that device is by telling you it's name?
  7. If the system recognises the device but doesn't correctly identify then you may need to install a driver for the microphone.
  8. From the windows start menu go to CONTROL PANEL.
  9. Click on SYSTEM, then HARDWARE, followed by DEVICE MANAGER
  10. Scroll down to SOUND VIDEO & GAME CONTROLLERS. Does the microphone appear here? If yes does it have a little yellow asterisk next to it? If so it is a driver issue.
  11. Sometimes a USB driver issue can be resolved by uninstalling the USB controllers and reinstalling them. Scroll down the list of devices in DEVICE MANAGER until you get to UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. Systematically uninstall every device listed here. To do this RIGHT CLICK on each device and then click UNINSTALL. Then on the TOOL BAR click CHECK FOR SYSTEM CHANGES. this will reinstall all USB devices and controllers.
  12. If that does not solve the USB problem go to your computer manufacturers website and download the latest USB drivers for your machine.
  13. Assuming you have overcome the USB issue (or if this was not the problem anyway) you now need to check that the microphone is selected as your default audio device.
  14. To do this go back to CONTROL PANEL, followed by SOUND & AUDIO DEVICES
  15. Click on AUDIO and, under the SOUND RECORDING tab select your microphone from the drop down list.
  16. Then click the VOLUME button which will open a window called RECORDING CONTROL
  17. Make sure there is a tick (check mark) against microphone and that the slider is up at the top of the scale.
  18. If everything is okay up to this point the problem may well lie in the settings for the audio / recording program that you are using. Most programs have some sort of wizard for testing audio settings, which you will need to work through.

Hi, I'm using a logitech usb desktop microphone and it is not picking up any sound. What are some likely solutions to my problem? I'm running windows Vista 64-bit.


Did you check whether the plug is in the right port and it is not set to mute in the volume panel anywhere, and also the driver is installed and working properly, no exclaimation mark in USB devices?

My labtop wont see my webcam


Hi,

Need make and model of webcam and laptop to help, but try testing USB ports. If thats the issue then you need to download and install the drivers for the USB ports on the laptop.

Also try the webcam in another PC and if it picks up it may be the USB port is broken.

Another option is to check the specs of oyur webcam, and make sure it works with your OS ( Some may not work with MAC or Vista, or 64 bit OS's)

If you would like to provide more information, or require more information, get back to me, I CAN solve this problem.

I can't seem to get Audacity to see the G-Track USB microphone on my MAC. I set all the preferences - but did not download any drivers?


I'm not familiar with Macs but try going to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/beta_mac and look at the system requirements for the version you need. The Help tab on the site contains lots of info too. Great program. I'm using the newest beta version om Windows and found that the manual is quite useful once you find it on their site.

Uploading video from Canon HG10 HD 40GB


I CAN HELP ON PARTS OF YOUR PROBLEM. FIRST, MOST CAMERAS DOWNLOAD IMAGES THAT ARE COMPATIBLE TO WINDOWS SYSTEMS, NOT MACS. FOR DOWNLOADING TO A MAC I'M AFRAID YOU'LL HAVE TO GO TO THE MAC WEBSITE. I'M A WINDOWS VISTA USER.
AS FAR AS THE HDMI PORT, THAT PORT IS AN OUTPUT PORT TO CONNECT TO A HIGH DEF. TV. YOU DO NOT WANT TO FORCE ANY CABLES INTO YOUR CAMERA ETC. CONSULT THE CANON WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION ON DOWNLOADING TO MACS. A STANDARD USB CONNECTION SHOULD BE FINE TO DOWNLOAD. I HOPE THIS HELPS SOME. SORRY I'M NOT UP ON MACS, BUT I'VE BEEN WITH WINDOWS SINCE WIN3.1 OR EARLIER. GOOD LUCK!
